decorated our Chelsea apartment so successfully that we would heartily recommend her to anyone seeking a creative designer
who is a pleasure to work with. She not only transformed our apartment but made new lifelong friends in my husband
Our apartment - which was a mess - has been transformed in just the past year. It not only looks worlds
better but it has actually improved our life style. We can now do more entertaining, more reading and more work at home.
Yet during the whole process Ms. Gesimondo never seemed to be pushing her views on us. The year went so smoothly
that we almost felt that all of the ideas were our own! One of her most delightful skills is in negotiating with me and
my husband (imagine three people sitting around a table who start out agreeing on essentially nothing).
to say that we never had any headaches that are supposed to accompany all New York jobs. All the work was done on schedule
and within budget. Ms. Gesimondo works with a crew of consumate professionals (draper, carpenter, painter, electrician,
lighting consultant, installers) who arrive on time, do beautiful work, bill the agreed-upon amount and leave quietly and
peacefully. We always felt comfortable with all her vendors. Even our neighbors liked them.
We hired Nancy to give us an intial design consultation. She listened
to our dilemas and quickly sized things up. Her ideas helped us see the potential we hoped to achieve so we hired her
redecorate our apartment. Nancy helped us arrange the furniture in a way we had not thought of but it totally transformed
our living space. We really appreciated her attention to detail in regard to the apartment's inherent architectural details
and natural lighting. We found the scaled layout very helpful to visualize how the size of the furniture fit in the
room. She helped us choose the right furniture and beautiful lighing, as well as paint colors for the entire space. Her fees
were reasonable and we would gladly recommend her to anyone.

I hired Nancy to refurbish and decorate my loft in Tribeca. She took control of the project from start to finish, starting
by creating computer generated layouts. She took me shopping for the right furniture and accessories always being mindful
of the overall budget. Nancy has great imagination and was very good at visualizing and implementing the broad guidance I
gave her. She is a consummate professional and a pleasure to deal with. The results were amazing and I highly recommend her!
We moved into a stark white condo and really
wanted to warm it up and turn it into a home. With the cost of renovating so high, we really didn't want to make the wrong
choices. So, we consulted Nancy - what a difference she made! Nancy met with us and in no time she had selected a color and lighting scheme such
that each room would flow beautifully into the next. She also recommended a series of small, cost-effective tweaks
to the bathrooms and kitchen that would make them feel custom-designed without breaking the bank. Nancy drafted everything
for us so that we could visualize our choices and get comfortable with them before purchasing materials or negotiating
with a contractor. We feel like we have an entirely new apartment thanks to her! Nancy, thank you for all of your help with this project. We couldn't be happier with the way things
have turned out - especially your choice of colors, which we love.

Nancy helped us renovate our bathrooms and redecorate our
eat-in kitchen and daughters' bedroom. Looking back, we could not have achieved the results we did without her. She
has exquisite taste, incredible attention to detail, and is very professional in her approach to the job and to the people
involved (clients, contractors and workmen). She is also a joy to spend time with which is the icing on the cake. We
look forward to working with her again.
My relationship with Nancy spans more than a decade,
through two apartments and an office redesign. She has had a fabulous influence on my style directions and design ambitions. I
trust her completely. So much so that when I am away on business I often leave her with blank signed checks so that she
can speed the process along with vendors.
Investing in Nancy's services was the best move we could have done before spending any money on furniture and paint choices
for our apartment. Nancy made a layout of our space and used this as a map that helped us decide on the placement and size
of the furniture we were considering. She immediately pointed out a few existing pieces of value and started from there, enriched
our ambiance without shifting our personal style. Based on the rich teal color of our new sofa, Nancy helped us choose the
best color for the walls. Her advice for lighing and other accents were right on point. Our home is also home to several
pets and her knowledge of material maintenence issues helped to inform our selections. We love how our new apartment looks
and recommend Nancy's services without hesitation. She is committed, reliable, fun and her designer eye won't disappoint you.
